RUSH: Grab sound bite number 19. I just love this. As you know, we finally had the birth of the royal baby and the distinguished princess waited ’til after the program to give birth. Kept it a secret from the media for a while so they could have some time with the new child. But I want you to hear the level of analysis that people watching CNN yesterday afternoon got on this. The anchorette, Brooke Baldwin, was speaking with royal commentator Victoria Arbiter, about the birth of Prince William and Duchess Kate’s little boy, and Brooke Baldwin said, “You know the royal life very well, Victoria, having lived in Kensington Palace. Your father was press secretary for the Queen for many, many years. It’s so exciting –” — ladies and gentlemen, we fought a war for independence so we wouldn’t have to care about the royal baby, did we not?
Anyway, so CNN’s asking this royal commentator, “What is your reaction to the birth?” It was on the way all day, and it finally came. “What is your reaction, Victoria?” Now, listen to this the level of analysis that CNN viewers got.
ARBITER: My first thought, I have to say, was this is how brilliant a royal Kate is. There are women throughout British royal family history that have panicked over not being able to deliver a boy, and here we are, Kate did it the first time.
RUSH: She’s a great royal because she delivered a boy the first time, a male heir. What’s so bad about having a baby girl? The feminazis here ought to be outraged over this. She’s being praised as though she had anything to do with it. She’s a great royal. She delivered a baby boy.
RUSH: Lots of people are gathered outside a door which may open, and some people might walk out. It’s the hospital, the Lindo Wing of a private hospital. That’s another point here, by the way. The Duchess of Cambridge did not go to a public hospital in the UK for the birth of the royal heir. She went to a private hospital. Imagine that. That’s that middle-out economy working so well in the UK.
RUSH: Now, I gotta take a brief time-out, and we’ll be back and continue. Aw, they’re driving away. The press didn’t get to see the baby much. But they did see the baby, right? The baby answered some questions? Oh, the mother and father answered the questions. Well, Snerdley said, “Yeah, the baby walked out and they answered some questions.” The baby didn’t walk out. They walked out with the baby, and Dawn just said, “The baby’s got Kate’s lips”? Oh, yeah, there’s a replay on Fox. I want to see the lips. The baby has Kate’s lips. When you look at that couple, just asking this rhetorically, when you look at that couple, who do you think calls the shots?
RUSH: I noticed one thing. I just took a look at the royal baby, and I had to observe — couldn’t miss it — that the baby already has his father’s thinning hair. You didn’t notice that? See, this is the difference. You saw the baby’s lips. I never did. I just saw, “Man, the kid’s hair’s already thinning, just like dad.”
